Phantom Drift: A Journal of New Fabulism. Debut Author lessons: Signing stock for bookstores - Mary Robinette Kowal. Debut Author lessons: Signing stock for bookstores I spent much of today tromping around Manhattan and heading into bookstores to sign copies of Shades of Milk and Honey.

The reason I trekked over the city is that signing books at a store does a number of things: It makes it easy to meet the staffAutographed books are placed face outThey tend to sell betterThere are typically fewer bookstore returns of signed booksLet me repeat the bit about meeting the staff. They are the ones who can handsell your book to a customer. Blake Charlton and Paolo Bacigalupi took me on a ride-along when they dropped in to sign stock in Boston. Here are the steps as I understand them for a drop-in signing, as opposed to a pre-arranged visit.
Find your book on the shelfCarry the books to the nearest information deskIntroduce yourself, ask if they want you to sign them.They will say yes.Have your own pen. Any other useful tricks? Summer is basically over.

Women's Coming of Age novels. The Women’s Bildungsroman (or) The Coming of Age Novel in the 20th Century Liminality is the state of “in between-ness” that accompanies adolescence, twilight, the space between, the borderlands.
The liminal state is often characterized by ambiguity, openness, and indeterminacy. One's sense of identity dissolves to some extent, bringing about disorientation. Liminality is a period of transition where normal limits to thought, self-understanding, and behavior are relaxed - a situation which can lead to new perspectives. The bildungsroman has been defined as “a novel of formation” but it has traditionally been thought of as a young man’s quest; women were expected to have different standards of maturity and seldom set off on their own to discover themselves. This course is a 3 credit senior (or graduate) seminar on the coming of age women’s novel. Grading: Your final assignment for this class will be an essay on your research for the semester.
